Truth And Liberty (Mike Simons) wins the $11,000 featured fillies & mares open pace at Tioga Downs on Friday (August 16).

Juxta Cowgirl (Aaron Byron) went to the front and controlled the pace hitting the first quarter in :27.1. Truth And Liberty ($3.90) watched from second as Juxta Cowgirl hit the half in :55.3 and three-quarters in 1:23.2.

Truth And Liberty, who is owned by Fairy Horsemother Stables and trained by Simons, came out of the pocket in the stretch. She took a short lead and Juxta Cowgirl fought back. But in the end Truth And Liberty was too strong and won in a seasonal best 1:51.0. Juxta Cowgirl had to settle for second. KJ's Caroline (Jim Taggart Jr.) finished third.

Truth And Liberty is a 7-year-old mare by Total Truth. It was her third straight win and seventh victory this season. She now has 42 career victories.

Leading driver Wally Hennessey drover four winners on the card. He got his wins with Check Mach ($3.90), Glamorgal ($5.20), Persistent Bettor ($4.90), and Odds On Cheddar ($3.20). Mike Simons drove three winners on the night. His other wins came with Cayenne Victory ($2.50), and Lime Twist ($10.80).

Tioga Downs returns to live racing on Saturday (August 17) with a 12 race card starting at 6:15 p.m.
